    What twist barrel - 1in 9.5 or 1 in 10 twist seem to be the norm.

    What stock - mine has a McMillan stock, the Tooley MBR. Alot of guys prefer McMillan's A-5 style stock. Quite a few have laminated stocks that they got from Joel Russo, most I've seen pics of were of the A-5 configuration. Also noticed alot of the HS precision stocks.

    They can be either repeaters or single shots, mine is a single shot.
